Yahoo! News - Microsoft Walking Fine Line with Security Push

Yahoo! News - Microsoft Walking Fine Line with Security Push: "As Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT - news) prepares to ship new software to protect its Windows operating system, a top target for malicious programers and hackers, the world's largest software maker also faces another threat -- the scrutiny of antitrust regulators fearing the monopolist could choke off competition.
If Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft ties its new anti-virus software, expected out later this year, too closely to Windows or prices it steeply below anti-virus software offered by vendors such as McAfee Inc. (NYSE:MFE - news) and Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq:SYMC - news), antitrust regulators could turn their attention toward the company again. "
